With our Easter spread and all, I had no energy but to throw everything on a single sheet pan and be set. Plus, that lemon glaze is everything.

Ingredients:

  • 4 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • Zest of 1 orange
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 large butternut squash (about 3 pounds), peeled, seeded and cut in 1-inch chunks
  • 1 1/2 pounds brussels sprouts, halved
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly oil a baking sheet or coat with nonstick spray.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together 2 tablespoons olive oil, butter, honey, brown sugar, Dijon, garlic, oregano, basil, lemon zest and orange zest; season with salt and pepper, to taste. Set aside.
  3. Place butternut squash and brussels sprouts in a single layer onto the prepared baking sheet. Drizzle with remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Top with chicken in a single layer and brush each chicken breast with honey mixture.
  4. Place into oven and roast until the chicken is completely cooked through, reaching an internal temperature of 165 degrees F, about 25-30 minutes. Then broil for 2-3 minutes, or until caramelized and slightly charred.
  5. Serve immediately, garnished with parsley, if desired.
